I recently got a SamKnows box. My 60Mbps connection was showing 45-55Mbps.
On 21st there was a half hour outage and I noticed I had 8 channels where before there were only 5. I can't swear that the extra channels coincided with the outage.
Initially nothing changed and SamKnows speeds were still showing 45-55Mbps. On 23rd and since I've been seeing > 60Mpbs reported by SamKnows.
I'm just wondering if it's likely VM added the channels but didn't start using them for data until they'd checked out the slope on all the cabinets receiving these extra channels.
Strangely enough the average jitter levels on my TBB chart haven't changed at all so far as I can see.
